Internship Announcement: It’s never too early to build your future

Each year, the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center hires several paid seasonal interns to assist with our archaeological research, education programs, and American Indian outreach. Our Summer Internship programs are led by some of the best archaeologist, educators, and American Indian advocates in the country.

This summer, we are offering four Public Archaeology Internships and one Education Internship to eligible undergraduate and graduate students in archaeology, anthropology, education, and related fields. Program dates are May 24—July 30, 2021.


Public Archaeology Interns will experience public-oriented archaeology and interpretation through a combination of fieldwork, laboratory work, American Indian engagement, education, and outreach.

Education Interns will help students learn about archaeology and the rich cultural heritage of Southwest Colorado through traditional and distance learning programs.

Becoming an intern is a competitive process, but the experience can be a vital first step in a career as a professional archaeologist. Interns here at Crow Canyon gain actual, practical research and outreach experience. Plus, there are perks!

Interns are paid $12.32 per hour (five-day week, Monday through Friday).
Lodging is available at no cost.
Meals included when the kitchen open, stipend provided when the kitchen is closed.
A travel allowance (up to $350) is available to help defray travel expenses.
Interns will be eligible for sick pay at 1 hour for every 30 hours worked.
Apply today! The application deadline for 2021 seasonal internships is March 12. Applications for both the Public Archaeology Internships and Education Internship can be submitted though the same link.
